Padma Shri for Ludhiana bizwoman Rajni Bector 2021/01/26 01:31:24 The Tribune
Nitin Jain Tribune News Service Ludhiana, January 25 From an unknown name to a name that counts today. Thus reads the success story of an octogenarian Ludhiana businesswoman, Rajni Bector, who rose from her backyard business with a paltry investment of Rs 300 to successfully raising a whooping Rs 541 crore from the market, and become an undisputed business tycoon. The initial public offering (IPO) of her company — Mrs Bectors Food Specialities — having made history by getting oversubscribed 198 times and listing at 74 per cent premium on the offer price, is fast becoming the buzz word in the business world. Recognising her contribution to the trade and industry, the Centre on Monday conferred the prestigious Padma Shri to Rajni. She was among the five recipients from the state, who have been honoured with the fourth highest civilian award. "I feel blessed and express my gratitude to the government for recognising my services," said the proud recipient of the Padma Shri. Making a modest beginning, Rajni began her in-house baking and ice-cream shop after doing a baking course at Punjab Agricultural University (PAU) in early 80s but till the time her businessman husband bought her a professional ice-cream churner by putting in an investment of Rs 20,000 in mid-80s, this tall, fair, and rather impressive woman was yet to earn any profit.
